It is no secret that proposing on the New Year is ultimately one of the most romantic gestures ever, but it can also be quite tricky to plan. With the busy schedules and the family get-togethers, it takes lots of effort to ensure the proposal goes off without a hitch. Here are a few must-know tips to ensure nothing gets in the way of the most important question you ever have to ask.

  • Do have your partner’s interests at heart and if necessary, consult with family and friends. If your partner prefers intimate settings, avoid public proposals at all means. If your partner does not mind the spotlight, then feel free to make go extra with your proposal.
  • Do not wait till the last minute to plan. Nothing would be worse than letting poor planning get in the way of asking the most important question you ever have to ask. So have everything prepped out prior to the big day.
  • Do remember that timing is everything. You do not want the guests to overshadow your engagement proposal, so maybe inform them ahead of time that you will propose. Or you can merely say, you have something special planned if you are worried someone may let the cat out of the bag.
  • Do not be uptight. When things do not go according to plan, do not be discouraged or beat up yourself over it. Instead, go with the flow. If you cannot seem to get a private moment with your partner because guests keep overshadowing you, wait till you get a chance with him or her. Or perhaps make a toast and incorporate your proposal nearing the end of your speech. That is if your partner is comfortable with being the center of attention.

Final Thoughts

With all the magic floating in the air, there is no denying that New Year is the ideal time to pop the big question. So, if you are ready to propose to your partner, this is the best time to begin your love story. That said, let love win, take the bold step, and put a ring on it.
